Kevin Durant Still Using Oklahoma City Thunder Keychain

Kevin Durant Still Using Oklahoma City Thunder Keychain

Someone seems to be having a hard time letting go… of an old keychain, that is.

Kevin Durant, who recently shocked the world about his decision to join the Golden State Warriors, has been super busy all summer, especially now that he’s preparing for the Rio Olympics. Too busy, in fact, to notice that he’s still using the Oklahoma City Thunder keychain/lanyard, which he brought along with him to a USA Basketball practice on Monday.

Thunder beat writer Anthony Slater shared photographic proof on his Twitter, writing:

It’s obviously not major, but it was only a matter of time before someone noticed. Unfortunately, we’re sure that it broke several Thunders fans hearts a little further.

Durant doesn’t even have to sweat to get himself a new team lanyard. He just needs to ask for one from his team, or drop a measly $9.99 for one from the NBA shop.

Here’s something that shocked NBA fans on Monday.

In a pretty shocking announcement via The Players’ Tribune, Kevin Durant revealed that he has experienced “by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life” he has decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.

Durant is now expected to sign a two-year deal worth $54.3 million with the new team, and will have a player option after the first year.

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant explained. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.”

Durant in the same team as MVP Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson? Definitely looking forward to what the team will be showing off!

What can you say about Durant’s decision?

Kevin Durant, basketball star and hero of the community?

News has it that the Thunder forward actually helped out the Oklahoma Emergency Medical Services Authority by using his own Ferrari’s flashers to help clear the roads for an ambulance and navigate through the traffic over the weekend.

The EMSA told TMZ, “Kevin’s actions are exactly how we hope citizens help paramedics reach their calls for emergencies. He is a great example of doing his part to help those in need, and he handled it with such modesty.”

They hope to be able to give Durant the coveted “Everyday Hero” award–which is usually only given 4 times a year–as soon as possible, amid his busy ballin’ schedule.

Good job, Kevin!
